Expiration Date for Proposed Changes: This sets a timeframe for the client to respond to the proposed solution and cost/time impacts. If the client goes outside of the set window, there could be additional impacts to the project. That aside, setting an expiration date provides urgency to the process.
Final Decision And Approval The customer should provide a timely response. If the Change Control Response document expires, it should be reevaluated once the customer provides feedback. If too much development has occurred to sustain the change, then that needs to be stated. If the delayed response has resulted in other impacts, they need to be communicated as soon as possible. It’s also possible that an expired response could lead to an additional review and proposal. Whatever decision results from all this need to be officially approved. When you define the Change Control process, be sure to include a list of sponsors, stakeholders and key decision makers who can OK both the process and the decision. Every change control request should follow this process. This isn’t to simply cover the team. It provides consistency and manages expectations. 8.
